Love it!

I love my Big Joe Series III, I use it 2 to 3 times every week. It is so easy to use, once you get the hang of it. My kids were not big red meat eaters before getting the Big Joe, but now they love the Steaks, Brisket, Ribs, and pretty much everything else I cook on this grill.

A Symphony of Culinary Experience

The Kamado Joe Grill isn't just another grill; it's a masterpiece of design and functionality that caters to the very soul of barbecue enthusiasts. Smoking Meat: Diving deep into its prowess, I first tested the Kamado Joe's smoking abilities. The thick ceramic walls trap heat, moisture, and flavor, ensuring an even and consistent temperature throughout the cooking process. This translates to beautifully smoked meats that are tender, juicy, and infused with that authentic smoky flavor. Whether it's ribs, brisket, or poultry, this grill handles it all with ease, offering a robust flavor profile that puts conventional smokers to shame. High-Temperature Steaks: Transitioning from low and slow to searingly hot, the Kamado Joe's capability to achieve incredibly high temperatures is awe-inspiring. Achieving that perfect Maillard reaction on your steaks becomes child's play. The intense heat sears the meat quickly, locking in juices and creating a mouth-watering crust, giving you steakhouse-quality results in the comfort of your backyard. Pizza Perfection: But this grill isn't limited to just meats. I was pleasantly surprised at its proficiency with pizzas. Using the Kamado Joe is akin to having your very own wood-fired oven. The ceramic dome reflects heat, which crisps up the base while ensuring an even bake on top. The result? A pizza with a perfectly charred crust, molten cheese, and toppings cooked to perfection. It's a game-changer for homemade pizza nights. Final Thoughts: The Kamado Joe Grill isn't just a grill, it's an experience. It takes you on a culinary journey from the art of smoking to the thrill of high-heat grilling and the joy of wood-fired baking. Whether you're a weekend griller or a seasoned pitmaster, the Kamado Joe is a worthy addition to any outdoor cooking setup, promising not just meals, but memories

Changed the way I cook

I've been using the Kamado Joe Big Joe III for almost 2 years now and it has been life changing. The way that it cooks is beyond anything I could have dreamed of. I went from making everything on a gas grill and doing a decent job to making incredibly tasty food with a lot less work. Once you learn how to get the grill fired up, the maintenance during a cook is really minimized. I love all of the accessories that come with the Big Joe as well. The SloRoller being my favorite. I've loved using the Joe so much that I purchased the Joetisserie and the DoJoe also. Would highly recommend this product 10 times over.

Where have you been all my life

Heard about the BGE several years ago. Could not make the decision to spend that much on a grill. When I found KJ and researched, it was obvious that KJ was a better overall choice. Finally made the leap earlier this year and could not be happier. Took a bit to get the hang of managing fire, but once I was able to get it dialed in, the cooks have been amazing. Ribs, pork shoulder, salmon, meatloaf, jerky have all turned out great. Looking forward to my first brisket.

Love, Love, Love

Haven't gone low and slow yet. On the list to get to. But grilling has so much flavor. Chicken, steak, burgers, pork chops all so much flavor!!! Better than any Weber, gas, or pellet grill.

Way easier than I expected!!!

I was initially reluctant to buy what seemed like a completely different grill because I was concerned I wouldn't know how to use it properly. So glad I went ahead! The temperature control is SO easy, and its the flame deflectors make it simple to avoid burning. Plus the insulation and inductive heating allows you to keep the meat moist when slow cooking. These grills are brilliant and mine makes me look like an expert!

Things We Love

Kamado Joe is the fastest growing brand in the Kamado industry for a reason. Introducing innovation with each new model, the kamado style cookers keep getting better and better. The Kamado Joe Classic III and Big Joe III are no exception. With awesome new features like an updated cooking system, SloRoller hyperbolic chamber, and an easy-to-use Airlift hinge, these smokers infuse rich, smoky flavor to just about any food!

Updated Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System

Kamado Joe is famous for their patented Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System. It’s an impressive multi-level cooking rack design that allows you to cook foods at different temperatures, at the same time. You can also create different heat zones in the kamado with Kamado Joe's half-moon shaped heat deflector plates. The plates partially block off heat to provide both direct & indirect heat from the open flame. For example, you could cook veggies on the upper level of the cooking rack, with the heat deflector blocking direct heat from the charcoal, while a steak gets a nice sear on one of the lower levels above the open flame.

The Kamado Joe Classic III and Big Joe III has a new and improved 3-tiered split rack. With this new addition, you can opt for 6 half-moon split cooking grids with 2 half-moon split heat deflector plates, or 4 half-moon split cooking grids and the SloRoller insert. Each level can span the entire surface of the smoker, or only half. Designed for flexibility, you can configure the grates to work however you need them too – the options are abundant!

You can also use a charcoal basket with the divider. This makes it really easy to separate leftover charcoal from ash. The divider, when combined with a split heat deflector plate, allows for direct heat on one side and indirect heat on the other side. It should be noted that the Kamado Joe Classic III and Big Joe III come with a divided charcoal basket, a 3 tiered flexible cooking rack, 1 accessory rack, 2 half-moon split cooking grids, 2 half-moon split heat deflector plates and the SloRoller insert. To get the full functionality of the divide and conquer system, 4 additional half-moon split cooking grids and 2 additional accessory racks can be purchased seperately.

Air-Lift Hinge

The new air lift hinge makes lifting the lid of the Kamado Joe III’s easier than ever before. The updated hinge features a single spring-loaded counterbalance mechanism that provides an ultra-light feel when opening the domed lid. It decreases the weight of the lid by 96%! Not only does this make lifting easier, but it also lowers the chance of the lid being broken or cracked by slamming down.

Great Customer Service

Kamado Joe really caters to their customers by providing excellent customer service. Any time you have an issue, the Kamado Joe team will work tirelessly to help you figure it out and get the issue resolved. They also offer a great warranty! Ceramic parts come with a lifetime warranty. Metal and cast iron parts are covered for 5 years. Ceramic plates are covered for 3 years, and fiberglass gaskets are covered for one year.

Great Accessories

While the Kamado Joe Classic and Big Joe III come with everything you need to get grilling right away, including an ash tool, grate lifter, 3-tiered cooking rack, 1 accessory rack, 2 half-moon cooking grids, 2 half-moon heat deflector plates, SloRoller insert, powder coated side shelves, slide out ash drawer and a divided charcoal basket, they also offer some awesome accessories to enhance your grilling or smoking experience. The Joetisserie can transform your kamado into a rotisserie. It can turn up to 50 pounds of chicken, pork loin, prime rib, or any kind of meat. It’s easy to install and can really amp up any party!

Things to Consider

The SloRoller is built for low and slow cooking. It shouldn’t be operated above 500F, as the Teflon coating can break down if it gets too hot. Make sure to refer to your owner’s manual on proper use of your grill and accessories.

Question:
What assembly is required?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
It's pretty simple you place the ceramic dome on the stand, insert some Ceramic Shields then insert the grill grates. A strong human can lift the dome alone, otherwise 1 helper will suffice. Inside of an hour all in.

Asked by MarioAnswered by matthewrodrigues7

Answer:
Yes, assembly is required but nothing to difficult. It comes shipped on a pallet to be assembled by owner.

Hi Andrew! The Kamado Joe Classic III is only sold with the grill cart but is not permanently attached if you have another base or built in option.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.
